GORKI, September 24. /ITAR-TASS/.

He said one-third of these people are children.
Federal Migration Service has registered more than 2.8 million crossings of the Ukrainian-Russian border since April 2014.
Over the past month alone, 12 government resolutions and a presidential decree have been adopted to regulate issues related to the accommodation of refugees from Ukraine's war-torn east in Russia.
